Election is getting near! Haha, if a political candidate tries to put muds on against his opponents, he'll be listed on my "Not to vote candidates" at once.

I think that Gibo is the only one not participating in this. He's all for positive campaigning

Hi Saranggola! You might have no one to vote then. I think all of them are slinging mud all over the place especially now that the election is so near. It must be necessary for politicians to know how to do that.

LOL. So be it. I wouldn't waste my vote for non deserving people.

Just one question, what if the perpetrator of such mud slinging acts is the same person who directly receives the attack? A strategic move to generate sympathy... Politics can be very dirty but having dirt in your face could sometimes work for your advantage.

I believe in people's capacity to discern who's lying and who's not. XD

That is very common though. Most politicians will try to find faults in their opponents and try to damage their credibility. Many will try to show that they are the lesser evil by proving that their opponents are the "more" evil ones. The funniest thing in the end though is when the elections are done and a candidate loses, the accusation would always be "he was cheated" while if a candidate wins, "he cheated".

And so, no one has ever really lost the election. Haha
